When a new year rolls around, we are given a blank slate, a fresh start, a new beginning. It is the perfect time to think about all of the experiences (good & bad) you’ve accumulated within the last year so you can use them to your advantage. Reevaluate your year up to now, and implement changes to benefit your life.
Below is a list of 5 things to do before the new year that should help you make 2017 the absolute best!

Reminisce on your memories from the last year, so much can happen in only 12 months! What are some of the most memorable experiences you’ve had? (Good & bad.) How have they affected your life / you as a person? Learn from everything you have gone through and use these lessons to construct a wonderful new year. Keep in mind the changes you want made and things you want to stay the same.
Set a goal.
You have 12 months full of possibilities up ahead. And what’s a new year without setting a goal for yourself? It doesn’t necessarily have to be an entire list you want to get through by next December (I often find actually these leave more disappointment than satisfaction.) Create one goal for yourself that you really want from yourself. Something that you know is definitely attainable. For example, maybe you want to take steps to learning a new hobby, visiting a new place, or reading that book that’s been on your list forever. It could be anything (big or small) just make sure it is something that benefits yourself and something you can definitely accomplish.
Make a plan.
